Kai Havertz’s hat-trick spearheaded Chelsea’s 6-0 Carabao Cup hammering of Barnsley as Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell enjoyed promising Blues debuts.

The German International bagged his first Chelsea goals, relishing a more central role as Frank Lampard’s men overpowered their Championship opponents.

Tammy Abraham, Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud also found the net in a dominant Chelsea display at Stamford Bridge.

Havertz took his goals well and looks most natural as a No 10, but the lessons proved precious few on a comfortable night.

Silva’s calmness shone through right from the off, the Brazilian bossing his team-mates whether Chelsea were in or out of possession.

The Blues will next take on West Brown in the Premier League.
